How do you like those Avid brakes? I am thinking of getting them to replace my Shimano CX70 as I dont feel they are responsive enough and sufficient breaking power. thoughts??

They were great, but a good set of v brakes would probably stop better.

Love the colors. Understand(and agree re: discs) but what is the advantage of 1x10 setup. Only for short courses?

iStone says:

I ran a few races this year and never shifted to my big ring once. I'll switch the gearing up for my 1x10 set up and get a better coverage than my current 36/11-28 does. There will be less parts to go wrong as well as no dropped chains. The Force front and rear derailleurs will go on my Cannondale since it currently runs Rival.

true. yet so many frames are only available in disc version. i wanted to get a colnago prestige some months ago, but opted for another cx frame because you can't get the canti version anymore...kinda sad

It was the same frame, but in black/white. It's still sitting around because I'm too lazy to sell it.
